Living in the Bay Area, Iâ€™m anything except â€œrichâ€. But I guess according to most standards, Iâ€™m in the top few percent. But I canâ€™t remember how often I have said this to my friends: â€œThe only reason I got a hybrid was to buy my way into the carpool lane.â€
And yeah, it is totally worth it!!! But how much did our government make off my desire to drive faster than all the commoners? $8. Honda got the rest. What a bunch of suckers.
